Weekend Camps & Retreats

Bear Creek Camp hosts special weekend camps every year over Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, as well as other special retreat weekends like the Women’s Retreat. Make a Bear Creek Camp weekend part of your plan to reconnect with your loved ones and explore, celebrate and grow in God’s creation.


Come and join us for a fun-filled weekend at Bear Creek Camp this winter! Over the past few winters we have been having a winter camp called CONNECT, which is a time for you to CONNECT with God and to re-CONNECT with friends from camp.

This year our theme is Salt & Light, which comes from Matthew 5:13-16! We are called to be the Salt of the earth and the Light of the world, but what does that mean and how do we do that? Join in on the conversation at CONNECT!

Plus we will be having a blast doing all of the fun activities that Bear Creek Camp has to offer during the winter!

We offer two different weekends for CONNECT, which run Friday night at 7 through Sunday after lunch. The weekends are:

  • January 13-15 for 7-12th Grade
  • February 3-5 for 4-8th Grade

Columbus Day Confirmation Retreat

Your Church + Bear Creek Camp
Bear Creek Camp would like to help pastors in leading a confirmation program at BCC with activities and a schedule to allow for a retreat-like experience. We know that the reality when you have a few confirmation students is that it is difficult to go on a retreat. But when you combine multiple churches into one event, you are able to create and receive all of the benefits of a bonding and learning experience away from church.
